Human Ectocervical Cells
|Title:||Human Ectocervical Cells|
Infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with various cancers, including cervical cancer. Researchers are working to understand the processes by which HPV can transform a healthy cell into a cancerous one. This image shows human ectocervical cells (HEC), growing in 3D air-liquid interface culture. Green color represents cytokeratin 14 (K14), red represents involucrin, and nuclei are shown in blue.
